Okay, you have to stop making emotional layouts! You have me in tears! I can completely related to you. My husband is an active duty Marine, so we spent 7.5 years in NC - a 24 hour drive from my family. We are set to move again next year. More than likely it will be Cali which will be a 31 hour drive. I love being a part of the military, but it breaks my heart to be so far from my family. Sorry about making this comment about me; you just really hit home with your beautiful and heartfelt journaling. Thanks for sharing.
I have to agree with you Sarah.. Although I'm in the same state, I live 6 1/2 hours from what will always be my home!! I love visiting and I always want to stay forever. This is a beautiful layout! I love everything about it!! Thanks for sharing.
